New 3D printer profiles for Photoshop CC

Photoshop CC now has had even more printer profiles added to enable 3D prints to be made on even more online services.

Photoshop CC already supported the Sculpteo and Shapeways 3D printing services, Photoshop CC now supports i.Materialise as well as DMM (for Japan).

The profiles are downloadable from the Photoshop 3D web site and It’s simple to install the profiles into your current version of Photoshop CC.

First, download the new profiles from the Photoshop 3D printing site, to your computer.

Once the file has downloaded you should either have a zip file, or a folder called ‘All Printer Profiles’. Open this folder / zip file and you will find a zip file for each printer profile.

Unzip the one that you would like to install and then open it from Photoshop CC, to do this, Open Photoshop CC and open menu item File / Scripts / Browse and select the .JSX file under within the printer profile folder

You will see a ‘Done’ message as soon has the profile has been imported.

To make sure the profiles have been installed, open a 3D model into Photoshop CC, then goto the 3D menu and choose 3D Print Settings. You should see (in this example) the i.materialise profile under the print to selector (marked in red), and under the printer a list of materials should be displayed and available for selection.

Repeat for other profiles.
